A Typical Cold?
Brent J.F. Hill
In this problem-based learning case, a couple who has adopted a three-year-old toddler is concerned about the child’s health, in particular the fact that the boy wheezes when he breathes. Students work in groups to analyze a variety of information and formulate a diagnosis. The case was developed for a two-semester anatomy and physiology class for undergraduates to teach them about cell physiology and tissue anatomy.
